love TAGplorations blog hop - day 3


Have you been checking out the LOVE TAGplorations blog hop at the STAMplorations blog? Today is day 3, but you can catch up on all the fun in this post.

I have a tag for you. And a little bit more. I follow Thurston Post on IG and let myself be inspired today by Rebecca's work. It's enchanting really. If you've never visited, you must. After you peek at my creation! Here's the tag...


And this is the whole gift bag getup.  Made from recycled heavy paper which is used (rolled up) in the center of gift wrap rolls here in Germany!


It's 8 inches in diameter with an opening up top. I'm planning to use it to gift a set of handmade cards, but you could use it for so many things.

Stop by the STAMplorations blog next Tuesday for my Spotlight tutorial on making this gift bag. These are the products I used:

Pocket Blooms

Luggage Tags
Artsy Tribal Doodles

Zen Hearts

Join us won't you? Link up a LOVE Tag in the linky party. And leave comments to win a GC or some of these LOVEly new products. You can link up and leave comments until Valentine's Day! Thanks for hopping.

I'm joining these fun challenges:
Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Sweet Inspiration
Stempelkueche - Von Herzen
Artistic Stamper - Love Hearts

And on a personal note... 2017 has been quite the downer so far in my world. Won't bore you with the details but among other things my Mom (who is in MI - I am in Germany) is having health issues. Many of you probably know how difficult it is to manage this from afar. The medical personnel are telling me it's a temporary medicine-related thing, but she feels miserable. I was wondering if any of you wonderful cardmaking peeps would care to send her a card to brighten her day? If so, please tell me in the comments and I'll PM you her address :)
